Who we are.


Core Values

- We utilize our life experiences to positively affect our community.

- We are dedicated: we understand that working for the community is a lifestyle, not a job

- We ensure youth voice, youth influences and youth leadership is integrated in all of the work we do.



Young people can do anything with the appropriate amount of training and support.



Our purpose is to provide information, resources and support to youth and their allies.
